I’m parent from one cello beginner attending music school. We would like to buy our first cello instrument and have one offer for Suzuki No40 cello 3/4:

I can not found any link to Suzuki products or some useful review/ reference for the Suzuki cellos.

The size is not an issue, know for sure that we need 3/4 cello, but my question is if someone have experience with Suzuki cellos and to get your opinion about this particular one?
I can not try it, just can see from the picture and description. I would appreciate for your opinion or suggestions. Thanks!

My son rented a small Suzuki cello when he started (1/10?) I don’t think the quality was very good, but then again it’s difficult to tell with a very young beginner using such a small instrument! Someone can correct me if I’m wrong, but I believe that Japanese cellos run smaller than German cellos, for example. I believe that as my son grew, he upgraded to a 1/10 cello by a different maker and it was noticeably bigger.

Thank you very much for your kind reply.
I have also heard that Suzuki have smaller sizes then other standards but nothing more…
It is hard to buy music instrument on distance… I think that I will buy it locally.
Specially if you don’t have any reference or review to get some opinion.
Now I’m thinking about YAMAHA VC5. :)

Thank you
